What Happened to Libya’s Gold? – Questions For Corbett #036

by | Jun 24, 2017 | Questions For Corbett | 56 comments

Libya had 144 tons of gold in the vaults when NATO’s humanitarian love bombs began raining down in 2011. So now that the company has been utterly destroyed and discarded like yesterday’s newspaper, what happened to all that gold, anyway? Join James for this month’s #Q4C as he delves into the topic of Libya’s gold and fields your questions on Skull & Bones, CIA art, open borders, education in Japan and much more.

  1. Thanks for pointing that out, paul6. The link has been fixed.

    • James,Today I came across a Robert David Steel video wherein he stated that ” Podesta was in Europe this week laundering money by buying art work”. Sorry I can’t remember which show he was on, I must of watched 8 to 10 shows. Also I can’t remember him mentioning what source of money Podesta was to be laundering. Don’t you have Steels number? I would enjoy your perspectives on #unrig. Is it a statist , collective hive mind move as some critics suggest? What do you feel about Steels alternative agenda if there is one or a hundred. I’m to the point of over-saturation of listed problems and ready to move to the action stage of solutions. My community has had several high profile murders of people of color by law enforcement and the restraint of the black community is admirable. I want a summer of peace not violence however law enforcement seems to be deliberately inflaming the situation. Steel said Soros has paid demo-activists (like Berkley)to riot this summer when ever possibility araises. The restraint shown by my community is remarkable given the circumstances. We have George Kaiser vs George Soros here in Joklahoma. Mothra vs Godzilla. Heaven help us.

  2. A high profile terrorist or assassin who wasn’t connected in some way to government…

    The “Texas Tower Sniper”, Charles Whitman – August 1, 1966
    As far as I know, this guy was not connected with a government agency.(90 second video) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShlbXlfQlkU

    I remember it. It was a major shock; he did the unthinkable. It was very big news and impacted the Nation. This type of behavior rarely, if ever, occurred. Society during this era could not even imagine such a thing.

    In 1966, many Texas High School kids had a rifle on the back window rack in their pickup.
    In my near-west Texas town during the late 60’s and early 70’s, there were the occasional High School, big group fist fights with the goat-ropers versus the Blacks in the parking lot. Sometimes 20 to 60 people got into a big scrap with many biting gravel. The parking lot had a large number of pickup trucks with visible rifles. Many students had guns in the trunk of their cars.
    I am in the designated student smoking section with friends watching one of these scenes play out. No student even considered the idea of grabbing a gun or knife or tire iron. Just boots and fists and “derogatories”.

  3. It would seem that all of the people that should have been in Building 7 were told to evacuate. There really is no way they would have known it would collapse.

    • Good point. Very good point.

    • The building was on fire for several hours spanning multiple floors, so everyone would have been told to evacuate long before the collapse so fire fighters could assess the building. But, Barry Jennings in an interview said that when he entered the building that it appeared to have been very recently evacuated. When he left he said he thinks they stepped over dead bodies on the floor and that the lobby had been blown out and was burned, which had not happened when he entered the building. So you do raise a good question, because some people in the building obviously were told to evacuate prior to any major damage.

  4. Here’s a fun hypothetical Q4C – how do you think a march on raven rock would go down? While most, ahem, consumers of American media might not bat an eye at the outright Outright slaughter of a few unruly domestic terrorists, what do you predict the outcome would be for a large peaceful demonstration mounted in today’s social climate?

    I can think of many institutions (the fed, Langley, hell, even congress) that are loathed by the public, but would the citizens, being acclimated to tyranny and fearful of one another, recognize acts of civil disobedience directed against these institutions as being aligned with their own interests?

    Thanks James !!

  5. Zodiac was a fictional newspaper invention for sensational sales = fake news.

    This is a good Zodiac exposé – thkelly67 “Thomas Henry Horan on the Zodiac Myth, the Seth Rich Murder and Pedogate” (2017-06-11): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_hYEXu0GC4

    Please invite Thomas Henry Horan on – or – get him _and_ “Criminal Investigator” John Cameron (who claims Edward Edwards was the Zodiac and more) at the same time to duke it out !

    Also, when you say “the bastion of truthiness itself, Wikipedia” PLEASE use more sarcasm.

  6. Thanks erichard for another link.
    I didn’t have the audio problem. But at times, I had problems with my eyes watering. A lot of life’s beauty…humanity…. I don’t know the words for it.

  7. I just finished watching Children Full of Life. You are right, James. This film is full of compassion, and what a terrific teacher he is. I wonder how those 35 children are doing today, how they applied their lessons to their young adult lives now. Thank you for the suggestion.

  8. Question for Corbett: When Trump hit the primaries, my long time hero Alex Jones jumped on the bandwagon and nearly deified him with praise, while simultaneously overlooking his many flaws. From then on he embarked on a downward spiral that caused me to unfollow him in all formats and warn others of this staunch change. Why do you think he betrayed his cynical outlook of almost all politicians, and fell head over heals in love with a man that didn’t have that much to offer? Controlled opposition? If so, when do you think he became controlled? In addition, this phenomenon doesn’t seem to reside solely with the folks at Infowars, but also other former heroes like Mark Dice. What is you opinion of why the Alt media made this turn?

    • Pablo,
      I like that phrase “mierda del torro”.

      You pose a question which probably many thousands of “truthers” are asking.

      I too am puzzled and you got me to pondering…
      Perhaps “hope” is a factor.
      Perhaps even more fundamental is a false foundational concept which some of these well known truth leaders have…“a belief that the system can be fixed from within the system”.

      “A belief that the system can be fixed from within the system” is actually a pretty silly idea when one steps back to view it.
      After all, ‘The Powers That Shouldn’t Be’ own the system. It is their board game, their rules. And they can change the rules anytime they want.
      They have fun by trapping us on the board game.

      In a more ideal world, everyone would just say: “I’m not playing your game…and oh, by the way, all that property and wealth you say you own, those pieces of paper are worthless. Me and Sara are going to take this Chalet, relax for a while and watch everyone else split up stuff….”

    • While these guys are not your everyday people, people in general have a tendency to latch on to something that looks (or sounds or feels or whatever) promising while completely ignoring independent, critical thinking.

      To believe that the person which is ALLOWED to run for president can single handedly change the system from WITHIN, the very same system which allowed their ascent and makes all the rules, is beyond ridiculous. But people want change and they don’t want to work hard for it, so they vote for the president and then bitch and moan about all of the false promises. And that’s only if they have the temerity to notice the broken promises.

      Another alt media person, Michael Riverro, whom I appreciate and who has made some solid content, totally fell for Trump. I don’t think Michael is controlled opposition, he simply took the bait, like many others have. One would expect from a reasonable, experienced, open minded media person to be vary of such false promises, but nah. It all boils down to intricacy of the lie and the targeted audience.

  9. Always good to see Richard Grove clips. I feel like he should be a regular on Corbett Report. Also, this might be an “off-limits topic” but he (Grove) mentioned a Marsh executive who made sure his personnel were in the office bright and early on the morning of 9/11 (while he attended the call via telephone). Did he ever pursue anything against this person? Or would that be far too dangerous (plus pointless because if this guy was “in the know”, he’d certainly be protected from prosecution)?

  10. Regarding the people around Silverstein who all “coincidentally” weren’t in the WTC (like they normally would be), would Silverstein really tell his kids in advance what was actually about to happen? That seems like it would be risky because what if they were morally outraged? Possibly he figured out how to make sure they missed their meetings without explicitly telling them details in advance? It would be interesting to get their stories of that day (I might pass along this idea to WeAreChange).

    Also, at 27:15 you said: “Silverstein’s top aide – Geoffrey Wharton – was actually at an 8:30AM meeting at Windows on the World – the meeting that Silverstein missed. He was meeting Liz Thompson, the Executive director of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council to discuss the Council’s relationship with Silverstein Properties. According to the Engineering News, he decided to escort his guest down to the lobby. He cut the meeting short and then escorted his guest down to the lobby. And he got on an elevator at 8:44AM, ie 2 minutes before flight 11 hit. So they were in the elevator and managed to get down before everything went crazy.”

    The fact that he cut the meeting short definitely raises an eyebrow. But it’s even more fascinating to me that he cut things THAT close (2 minutes prior?!). Does this mean they had this planned down to the minute?? That seems like it would be insanely risky! Possibly he got a phone call telling him to “leave right away” (or something along those lines)? Again, it would be interesting to hear his story of that day.

  11. Thank you for the pointer to the excellent video – Children Full of Light. What an inspiration!! Superb video of a wonderful human being and mentor.

  12. Dear Pablo, the amount of bombs dropped will be reversely proportional to the decline in control. As an added bonus, more people you kill, less you have to control.

    • I was there is Modena in 2008, their last, kind of revival tour. Felt great even if it was a very strenuous day start to finish.


      Probably nobody who grew under the influence of 24/7 propaganda coverage was left completely immune to the alluring effects of poisons ideologies, such as is nationalism, partisanship and the most common tribalism. Practically everything we’re ever taught is about us versus them, it’s at the core of narration structure. To the list of mind control mechanisms I’d also add (extreme) infatuation propped up by Hollywood propaganda movies which finds its basis in emotional instability and lack of emotional intelligence.

  13. How many people go through their lives without ever gaining even a small part of understanding those children have?

  14. Gold tidbit
    A cubic foot of gold weighs approximately 1,206 pounds.
    A cubic inch of gold weighs approximately 0.7 pounds.
    Gold is a dense, heavy metal, and if a 1-gallon milk container was filled with gold, it would weigh about 161 pounds.

    It is about 19 times heavier than water (which is why panning for gold works well).

  15. Q4C

    Hi James, been meaning to ask a few questions for a while but, with the new Conspiracy Law now in effect, and your recent interview with Graham Smith of Voluntary Japan last month, I felt I should hurry up and ask them now:

    1. As an outspoken foreign resident in Japan, do you feel the need to avoid certain subjects for fear of incurring the wrath of the Japanese government, are you aware of any interest the Japanese authorities may have in your work, and how do you feel the recent law will affect your work?

    2. Are you aware of any Japanese networks, groups etc. in Japan sympathetic to your views and opinions and whom you might want to recommend other foreign residents in Japan to get in touch with? As a fellow foreign resident in Japan and a follower of yourself and Graham Smith’s over at Voluntary Japan (with whom I’m working on a project or two), I would love to reach out to some Japanese who share our views but have so far found none. Would love to know if you have had better luck.

    3. Are any of your videos/essays available in Japanese?

    Thanks again for all the hard work, and looking forward to the next ten years!

  16. VD,
    Cool T-shirt… “DON’T OBEY”.
    I would react too.

  17. #Q4C
    I have a question for Corbett after watching Is Government Immoral? Stefan Molyneux vs. Tom Willcutts.

    If the definition of government is that they are initiators of force and that is the biggest reason to oppose government, doesn’t the original intent of the UNited States Constitution solve that problem?

    No army was supposed to exist. Only a militia for the purposes of defense. No police were to encroach on citizens rights and had no right to arrest a citizen without a warrant attained after sufficient evidence was presented to suspect illegal activity. In both cases the initiation of force comes from another government or the citizen and not from the government.

    Taxes were only supposed to be imposed if they were used to directly benefit the people being taxed.

    Obviously this went down hill from the first day but the system was set up so that freedom was to be maintained by the people just like an anarchist society. The people apparently didn’t have the will to enforce their own authority and gave it over to criminals who corrupted the system.

    So another question would be; it seems that the US constitution address many of the anarchist’s concerns. What would allow the anarchist society not to fall to the same corruption America has fallen to?

    I think the only valid point that Tom Willcutts made was that it’s not the US system of government that was inherently evil. It is the corporations who corrupted that system and took advantage of the laziness of the population. What would prevent that from happening in any other system which has money that can be used as leverage?

    • Regarding the constitution, I’d say the rabbit hole goes deep on that one:

      The Constitution of No Authority

      So it was with those who originally adopted the Constitution. Whatever may have been their personal intentions, the legal meaning of their language, so far as their “posterity” was concerned, simply was, that their hopes and motives, in entering into the agreement, were that it might prove useful and acceptable to their posterity; that it might promote their union, safety, tranquility, and welfare; and that it might tend “to secure to them the blessings of liberty.” The language does not assert nor at all imply, any right, power, or disposition, on the part of the original parties to the agreement, to compel their “posterity” to live under it. If they had intended to bind their posterity to live under it, they should have said that their objective was, not “to secure to them the blessings of liberty,” but to make slaves of them; for if their “posterity” are bound to live under it, they are nothing less than the slaves of their foolish, tyrannical, and dead grandfathers.

      We seem to assume a lot.

      Regarding your last paragraph, I’d say the crux of the matter is the fact these “enemies” of the people have a very strong generational transfer of knowledge, wealth and ideology while the “common” folk do not.

    • The Constitution set up a representative government. That is one in which others (landowning white men at the time) represented the people. That is hardly the same as anarchy. And it is not the corporation who corrupted the system. The system was inherently corrupt. Corporations are not inherently corrupt, just inherently opportunistic. They can’t survive if the market doesn’t buy their products. Government can make you buy their whatever it is they offer.

  18. it seems that if we want to make a claim that some people where not in the twin towers because they knew of the attacks we need to do an alysis of the whereabouts of every person who stood to benefit. If four or five key figures happened to be in the right place at the right time while 100s weren’t it seems likely they just got “lucky”. But if 100s (or whatever the number is) where conveniently absent then it stands to reason they knew.

    I tend to believe they knew and were intentionally detained or made better plans for that time. But it doesn’t seem like proof to say someone knew just because they weren’t there.

  19. #Q4C Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies in general. Just another attempt by the powers that should not be to implement the vision of Technocracy Incorporated of an energy related economic system, in particular a monetary system that is inherently deflationary? Another by product being the Orwellian wet dream of trace ability offered by block chain technology.

    Would appreciate your thoughts.

    Question influenced by pages 42 – 44 of Myths Lies and Oil Wars by FW Engdahl and this article


    Keep up the great work James.

  20. It seems that yesterday’s North Korean rocket was more powerful than the rocket Elon Musks SpaceX builds. Maybe we should give North Korea the contract to supply the International Space Station.

    My question is:
    Could the whole North Korean rocket program be an elaborate fabrication of the media and the military industrial complex, just like the Ieaqi weapons-of-mass-destruction?
    Is it just another “they-threw-the-babies-out-of-the-incubators”-excuse to start a war?

    • It’s easy to argument that indeed it is a media fabrication, to a certain extent. I don’t think anyone in their right mind will believe in such comic book villains, media has a long history of demonizing certail world “leaders” while at the same time completely ignoring crimes of others.

  21. Hi James,
    I don’t often watch MSM news, however chose to watch tonite and a question that has been lurking in my mind for a long time resurfaced; the vexed issue of freedom of movement vs the sovereignty of current long term residents and inhabitants. The news segment that pushed this thought back to the forefront of my mind was the Italian Governments reported actions of moving refugees into towns and regions without/ against the permission or approval of residents. How do we respond as free and voluntary individuals?

    • At the same time, in Italy there is a substantial formation of live-in-the-car type of camps around Rome (I’d wager other cities as well) where people who have been kept back economically go to … live? I don’t know what would be the correct expression here, but we’re talking about whole middle class families losing pretty much everything they had living in their cars. Many of them still having jobs but are unable to afford anything better than a 3 door sedan parked in a suburbia somewhere.

      Fast forward to your point and you see these people living in car camps looking at refugees (whom I also consider mostly to be decent people, just to be certain about this point) being brought from outside, placed in decent housing and maintained fed and clean. I have to imagine there would be quite a lot of resentment going on.

      There’s also quite a lot of room for self reflection, people living in car camps probably have a lot of spare time, which can be invested into contemplation. I doubt they’re doing it, though. They (we) could be asking themselves questions such as, how did I allow this to happen? The fact they are among people who are in the same predicament only amplifies induced emotions.

      I just wanted to comment on your question, I don’t have anything resembling a coherent answer. The only thing coming to mind on how to deal with a situation where government agents, those who enforce the will of the common enemy, do stuff you don’t want them to be doing includes arms and decisive decent people doing the right thing and saying enough is enough. Of course, such an unruly bunch would probably make it very difficult for the situation to become so dire in the first place, which would greatly minimize the explosive potential of the whole ordeal.

      It’s either that or storming politicians with protests, harsh banners and signed petitions.

      • Hi mkey,
        Thanks for your thoughts. I agree that most of the individuals involved in such camps, as well as most of the immigrants are most probably decent people. It’s tragic that they are pawns, mostly unwitting, of TPTSB. In the end both “sides” are screwed by the elite, whilst those of us who express concerns about migration are likely to be labelled racist. This then feeds into the politically correct culture that pervades so much of the developed world. Although the numbers of people arriving here in Australia are fewer than what Europe is experiencing, the PC thinking is alive and well, with governments not seeming to give a hoot about what many Australians want.

        • Thanks Richard Ran,

          Thanks for your reply (the more thoughtful, consideredr responses the better). In between building a raised garden berry bed and other pursuits at home tomorrow I hope to read through your response more closely.



    • Pretend you’re an elitist scumbag.
      Pretend the hoards of sheeple zombies are after your gold.
      Pretend you only have so many cops and extras in red shirts between you and the zombie mob who want to rip out your throat with their teeth.
      Pretend you’re also winning wars against neighboring tribes.

      What do you do?

      Import the refugees to divide and disenfranchise and dilute the rage of advancing sheeple zombies before they discover an antidote.

  22. HI James (This is a QFC)


  23. Question for Corbett
    What is your take regarding Japan and the Benjamin Fulford interview?

    In late July 2017, Zerohedge via “The Mind Unleashed” had this article interview: Former Mainstream Media Journalist Blows Whistle on 9/11 & Fukushima.

    I would love to get your take on it. It contains many interesting tidbits, such as a cousin of the Emperor giving Fulford a 9/11 Truth video or the Citibank-Japan money laundering or an anti-virus company making viruses.

    The credit for this goes to Corbett Report member “nawk”. He posted the link in the comment section.

    • Fulford? Really?

      In 2006, Fulford issued an ultimatum on behalf of his super secret ninjas to the Illuminati to cease and desist their destruction of the world. (http://www.savethemales.ca/002056.html) Oddly, the fundamental power structure of society failed to change overnight.

      In 2007, he predicted that Bush would resign to be replaced by Al Gore, and that the secret government that runs the US and EU was conceding to his secret ninjas plans (http://benjaminfulford.com/secretgoverment.html). Oddly, no such thing happened.

      Also in 2007, Fulford revealed that he was communicating with the ghost of his great-frandfather, who was writing letters to Rockefeller and revealing how the “matrix was about to collapse.” (http://www.rense.com/general79/benjk.htm) Oddly, his great-grandfather’s ghostly letter to Rockefeller inviting him to meet Fulford in Ontario resulted in no response whatsoever (http://www.rense.com/general79/fulf.htm)

      In 2008, Fulford predicted the complete failure of the US economy on Sept. 30, 2008. (http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=55392.0) Oddly, the economy failed to stop functioning and the US currency failed to disappear by October 1st of that year.

      In 2009, he claimed to have had a strange creature removed from his spinal cord during surgery which was apparently causing him to have “weird visions.” (http://www.rense.com/general84/abso.htm).

      I could go on. And on. And on and on. But if it is not evident that this man is either delusional or spreading deliberate disinformation by now, then I shudder to think what will become of a society whose powers of logic and reasoning have fallen to such a low level.

      • Oh man! Oh man! Oh man!

        Thanks Mr Corbett.

      • Why the hell would ghosts write letters? Or did the gramps write letters while he was alive? In which case, the entire story is perfectly plausible.

  24. john o.
    Well put rendition.

  25. Are you saying they are killing the poor in foreign lands but allowing the rich and educated to escape – collected, controled, and exploited in rich countries, hoarding gold like dragons?

    Say it ain’t so! Not our glorious leaders!

  26. Q4C:

    What book(s) or blogs would you recommend to understand all the intricacies of the 9/11 cover-up?

  27. Hello James & Community,

    I’m a recurring guest lecturer at my university since I graduated in 2014. I have followed James’ work for many years and have, in my own small way, tried to spread knowledge and insight with some of the content provided here and by his guests. Thank you so much for all that you have done over the years, James, community, & guests.

    I’ve been asked to return to speak recently and I would like to narrow my scope down to the ‘military conflicts’ (wars) that the US has been entangled in since 9.11. I have a plethora of information on Afghanistan and Iraq, but could use more with respects to Libya, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, & ???.

    Can anyone help point me toward their favorite or go-to content I could share with the students? Anything helps, especially insightful perspectives that helps Americans understand the true nature of US foreign policy and history–especially summations of conflicts with references to dig deeper.

    Thank you so very much.
